New Law May Be Necessary for Medicaid Mandatory Work Requirements, White House Says

The White House suggested on Thursday that Congress may need to pass a new law in order for states to impose work requirements on Medicaid beneficiaries. Mandatory work requirements could be key to motivating adults to work as there is evidence that many are choosing not to, according to a report issued by the Council of Economic Advisers, an agency within the Executive Office of the President. The council found that 60 percent of working-age Medicaid recipients who aren't disabled worked fewer than 20 hours per week. The report added there was a smaller unspecified amount of adult Medicaid enrollees who aren't disabled not working at all.  (Virgil Dickson, Modern Healthcare)
